Ceòbanach, which means ”Smoky Mist”, reflects the origin of Bunnahabhain - Ex-Bourbon cask maturation and heavily peated. Peat, vanilla and seaweed in the smell. Oak, fresh crisp green apples and just a hint of salt.
The peat really comes forward in the taste. Almost all-dominating! Oak and black pepper – again with a salty touch. The black pepper comes even more forward in the finish alongside some light citrusy notes and vanilla.
What a peppery-peated dram! Almost a bit too peppery. Some minutes in the glass opens it up a bit though, and it feels like you are taking a stroll down the harbor at Bunnahabhain Distillery. I will give this 84/100 (21/22/21/20).
